“Krua Kriang Nam” literally means Kitchen by the river in Thai language. The place clearly demonstrates river side ambiance with breeze near the Chaophraya river with some boat sailing around as an alternative choice of traveling in Thailand.

Coconut shoot provide firm texture which supported by spiciness from chili and sweetness shrimp. Making a great combination with rice to relief spiciness.

Small Crab Somtum (Thai spicy papaya salad)

Somtum is an all-around dish with spiciness from chili, sourness from lime, saltiness from fish fermented sauce and sweetness. This dish exhibits how enjoyable Somtum should be.

Grilled River Shrimp

This is one of me personal favorite. The texture of shrimp are so firm and sweet. Topped with spicy seafood sauce. Then mix the shrimp oil from the head with rice and enjoy one of the most simple and delicious menu Chaopraya river could offer.

Fried frog legs

Pretty sure this menu might excite and freak some people out at the same time. I gotta admit that used to have the same feeling too. Then I tried one haha. The skin part are so crispy and the leg part have such high similarity to chicken firmness.

I started with Tachiba restaurant which I have discovered without doing any preparation and research before traveling to Kobe. The place serves Akashi yaki which substitute Takoyaki flour by egg.

The result of changing the ingredient? Well, it’s amazing! Egg gave a fluffy texture and dipping Akashi Yaki into the light clear soup make it one of most appetizing meal I have ever came across. Gotta love it when chef flip the pan and Akashi yaki just came out easily and ready to be serve.

Then I went for a dessert café (La sensation) and got a custard cake with small dot of sour sauce to provide more dimension in color. Most satisfying cake indeed.

After having a nice snack and dessert, I stumbled upon Motoko market which located under the train track in Kobe. Series of classic and interesting shop inside for exploring.

That’s all for my review. In my opinion, Kobe is one of the tourist attraction city which could balance between city charm and modern world development. See you next later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊

 

Sweets in Zurich

Here’s my short reviews about street sweets that could be easily found on the street of Zurich. One of my favorite aspect in Zurich is the availability of public chairs which I could get any awesome Gelato and conveniently hop on the chair and start enjoying yummy Gelato.

Starting with Gelato from the famous Movenpick. I selected Swiss chocolate flavor and the texture were delicate with choc chips to make things more interesting.

The texture of Gelato are more thick compared to Movenpick. It also provide fresh and strong flavor of chocolate.

Gelato from 10′ dieci

This is one of the most packed chocolate Gelato I’ve ever tasted. Personally, I think it’s too thick. However, if you’re chocolate big fan I’m certain that this Gelato is a must when visit Zurich.

That’s all for this review. Personally, I think Zurich contain variety of Gelato which suits different types of chocolate lover from soft and tender to hardcore Chocodevil. See you later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊.
